All birds have been demoted for singing
too early in the morning, also for
appearing in too many lyric poems,
thus, occupying space better given
to distinguished political lobbyists
who wish to be heard above twitter-clicks
when the sun boasts its splendid rays at dawn.
There has been much debate of late whether
adult crows should have their larynx removed,
yet this is an absurd controversy,
a symptom of collective lunacy
in a land that prefers buffoonery.
Well, I’ll go back to drinking Clorox beer,
knowing all will be better by next year!
